I have nearly 500 games in my Steam account, and the vast majority of them are still unplayed. So now I'm dedicating an hour to each of these games and writing a series of One Hour Reviews.

One Hour Reviews - Game 4
Age of Wonders - Shadow Magic
Purchase Date: 5/22/2014

I got this game, along with the original Age of Wonders in a Humble Bundle. I didn't warm up very well to the original, so my hopes were not very high for this one. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that none of the things that annoyed me about the original game are present here.

I jumped right into the tutorial. Compared to the original, the tutorial in this game is vastly improved. The tutorial, like the original, starts by covering the basics of movement around the map and claiming resources, but then proceeds into a lot more detail. I felt like I had a much better sense of what my options were and what I needed to be doing.

When I played the first Age of Wonders, I actually had to restart the tutorial because I died. What I appreciated about Shadow Magic is, it gave me a good sense of the difficulty right off the bat, but I didn't have to start the entire tutorial over. The very first fight I got in, a giant beetle ended up stomping my entire party. But the tutorial was written to expect this, so rather than having to start over, the tutorial used this experience as a teaching lesson on what to expect. I really appreicated that.

The graphics in Shadow Magic are better, but that is to be expected given the length of time between the games. I didn't care for the animations in the original, but here the units move more naturally. Also the game provided all the resolution choices I'd expect to see. I played at 1920x1080, and didn't have any problems with menus or reading text.

The actual gameplay itself seemed much like the same turn-based strategy from the original Age of Wonders, which itself brought back memories from the old Heroes of Might and Magic games. I have a feeling that I'd probably enjoy the original more now that I've played this tutorial and have a better grasp of the game.

The only thing that really annoyed me about Shadow Magic happend when I was trying to back out of a command that I was issuing to my party by hitting the escape key. This brought me out to the main menu. I then hit the Continue button, except this command will actually load your last saved game. I didn't have any save games yet so it ended up not doing anything. I wanted to resume my game, so I hit escape again thinking it would close the menu and take me back into the game, but instead it dumped me out to the desktop. And thus, my review ended about 8 minutes early.

I really didn't expect to like this game given my impression with the original. So in this case I am glad to be wrong. I'm looking forward to coming back and spending more time in the campaign.

Overall Recommendation: Keep

Relativ altes, doch immer noch sehr geiles Spiel.
Werde ein Zauberer, behersche dein Element und dein Volk und überrenne deine Feinde.
Für jeden der rundenbasierte Fantasystrategiespiele mag ein absolutes muss ;)

One of the best strategy games of all times if not the best. A turn based game that is nearly perfect at all levels. The game conquered my heart with its great ambiances and environments, magical songs, beautifully animated 2D units, great scenario, original playable races, badass characters, well-made dialogs and difficulty level. I consider this as the hardest strategy game that I have played. Custom scenarios were amazing and the editor tool was so easy to use. I ended up crating new maps although there were no one to play with. Imagine Warcraft III and Civilization IV combined.. No you don't need to imagine, because this game exists!

Cat humanoids called Tigrans, out of this world creatures Syrons, Dragonians, Arabian and Turkish inspired people Nomads, arctic hobbits, evil bug like creations Shadow Demons... Even goblins had their own race... All these original races are so remarkable and unforgottable and playing with them is still fun and intense even after a total of ten years.

Be whoever you want to be, add a character bio, put your photoshopped picture on it, create new heroes and lead them to fight... Fight aganst good or evil, it does not matter, because you don't always get to play with good leaders. Be an evil Elven wizard or be a heavenly good Orcish shaman. Summon beholders, elementals, dragons and crack the earth under their feet while you separate their army with your tornados.

Go deep in the woods, find camps and ask them if they want to join you. If they answer "No" then kill all of them and take their money. Get ready for more adventure, visit old ruins that are full of zombies and skeletons, steal baby dragons from their mothers, hire a drunk Dwarven engineer from tavern to protect you and improve their fighting skills in arena. Explore sunken shipwrecks and kill pirates, or just simply be a pirate!

Visit beautifully made underworld to catch some outlaws and find new allies, like Goblins, Tigrans and Dwarves. Trade spells with their leaders and expand your empire. Banish terrestrial beings from their homes and get extra money from it. Be a bad person for once in your life! They'll hate you, they'll talk about you and they'll fear you and your undead champions! Raze cities and loot them! Destroy empires and rise yours!

Open the doors of engineering schools and buy some flame throwers and baloons to fly over the mountain. Order them to build up a tank for you! Move your army into the tank and raze enemy's wall and ruin their buildings over their head, because you know that they deserve it!

Teleport to the Shadow world, exterminate all evil and good spirits! Stamp big insects, larvas and feel the beauty of this place. Help Syron giants and occupy demonic cities with their power. Enjoy the game, enjoy the gameplay, enoy the song, enjoy every step you make, every unit you kill and every hero you hire, every city you conquer, every mountain you climb, every cave you explore, every turn you make... Enjoy it!
